According to their motto - “Love, truth, and service to community” - Xingyang Volunteer Federation works to enhance people’s sense of social responsibility through providing them various volunteer opportunities. The office is in Xingyang, Henan province.
In January of 2015, 400 pairs of cotton stocks were donated by Shenzhen Engrave Public Service. We sent 180 pairs of stocks to 90 supported students on 19th. When we went to school, we saw some students were wearing thin stocks and shoes on the playground. Their shoes were shabby, too. When we distribute the stocks, we recorded their feet sizes. We discussed to raised winter shoes for the children.
After the activity on Tuesday, a kind lady sent 20 pairs of winter shoes. We gave the shoes to 20 needy children.
At each school, we asked the children to try the shoes and asked their feelings. We also care about their study and other difficulties. We told the children to cut hair, wash hair, take a bath or wash clothes. We still told the children to do some housework as cooking, washing or cleanings. We said we wanted to see them clean and neatly when we would meet next time. Wearing winter shoes, their feet no longer felt cold and we felt warm, too.
